LVIV, UKRAINE TEAM

The relatively new church-planting effort in L’viv is MTW’s first outreach to western Ukraine. The uniquely cross-cultural team (American, Ukranian, South African) is building relationships through a variety of contexts including university ministry, art and music, English ministry, and mercy ministry, while also learning the culture, history, and language of L’viv (Ukrainian). The focus of the ministry in L’viv is on developing relationships with Ukrainians through open homes and open lives.

Many people in this culture have a great nominal affinity for Christianity and are open to discussing God’s Word, so many of the team’s ministries in L’viv are designed with this in mind. Our hope is that one day the surrounding western region will flourish with Ukrainian-speaking church plants, bringing the Word of God into people’s daily lives.

Pray for two women, Monika and Andrea, who have recently come to faith against the odds in a hard-to-reach, largely atheistic European city.
